I have to say, I started with a s/p Murray a long time ago and it cut well and was built like a tank. I sold it to my brother after a season or two because it's only flaw was it wasn't fast enough. But that was only because the pulley on the drive system was too small.

I like the fact that the Stanley is a 26" swath with direct drive, unlike the unwieldy looking brands that wide. And keeping it simple keeps it cheap. Fine if you just need a backyard gate mower from time to time and not a full time mower.

I'm curious what range of cut height it has and if it's got a decent drive system.

It's not direct drive. It has a less than reliable motion drrive system where a small pin catches on a small gear that drives a larger gear attached to a plastic drive wheel with 3 self -tapping screws right into the plastic. Its not up to even home owner use. I think it's discontinued and the leftovers were liquidated at small engine warehouse.
